Thanks. I can definitely tell that some of this stuff I haven't looked at in quite some time. There are a fair amount of things that just never were relevant to the CCT role I have so I focused on what was. What I've seen here though gives me hope, I still feel comfortable with vents, ABG's, transport radiology, etc. Others I could think my way through if I go back and dust off the cobwebs. Some practice stuff I've gone over I've just straight up forgotten. We'll see how much I polished up.

Definitely a few things I haven't heard of. Guessed on some. Think I correctly deduced others. Some felt like a all of the above. Most I felt ok with though, I think I did alright.

Now I’m just curious how this compares to say the regular, or “old”, exam. Lol, perhaps I’m just a slow learner but everyone seems to say this exam was easier or “not that bad”.

They really made "most appropriate answer" harder than NREMt did.

There were definitely challenging questions in there. There was a hernia one with 3 names I had never heard and hadn't the slightlest clue. A true I have a 1/3 chance so how about this. A couple neonates and I think yall know how I feel about those. Plenty of medical and trauma scenarios that make you think a bit. But I don't think I got a single PA cath or super in depth hemodynamic value one.

Yea, it was kind of annoying. There was one in particular I was thinking I'd just literally do both simultaneously. Another that was dependent from department to department. I think that's the hardest part about exams is it takes the finer nuances of how things actually flow and forces them into a more rigid format.

I've been following this thread for a hot minute as a guest to see how the beta exam compared. I went for the CCP-C long ago when I was a new paramedic with no experience and a dream, utterly failed it. (Big growth moment). Now that I have some time and certs under my belt I considered retaking it and have been wishy-washy since my FP-C covers me for all of my past employers. Is there truly any argument to take the beta over the current or even take the CCP-C at all?

If you have FP-C they're is likely no organization that wouldn't accept it over CCP.

If you have FP-C, probably no need to take it. I passed FP-C, but felt clueless during the test. Because CCP-C beta was being offered at a huge discount, I wanted to see if I felt less clueless. Each test I took, FP-C and CCP-C beta, it made me realize things I didn't know and look them up. I like that.

Now that I think about it, I don't recall getting any hemodynamic questions at all?

Somebody showed that it might be September 10th. That is what it says on IBSC Facebook. *fingers crossed*

I called IBSC and spoke to Ashley just now to inquire about the conflicting dates. She confirmed scores will be released beginning Oct 1 and NOT Sept 10th. Tomorrow is when they begin reviewing the results apparently

Ugh. That's terrible news. I'm tired of waiting.

Oh well. We knew the scoring would be delayed, but was hopeful. Hopefully passed, but don't need it if I didn't. I was bad at guessing the ones I didn't know.
